Rosendale Bali House, $6000/month

hv bali house2

We’ve been looking for an excuse to post about this house in Rosendale for months now. It’s cropped up in our searches because it was on the market until the beginning of this year, when some very smart people with good taste scooped it up and made the fabulous rental property you see before you. This slice of Zen is situate on its own stream-fed pond (perfect for swimming. Who needs a pool?), and the interior is resplendent with detailed Balinese carvings throughout. Also included: High bamboo ceilings, an outdoor shower, wrap-around patio, and a meditation sanctuary with a nearly 360 degree view of the pond outside. Yes, $6000/month is a lot, but it accommodates 8, and it’s close to Rosendale, Kingston, High Falls, Stone Ridge, and New Paltz. Or, if you’d rather keep it shorter and cheaper, you could pay $300-$350/night, two night minimum stay.

Callicoon Victorian, $119,000

54 upper main street callicoon ny

As if you need another reason to like Callicoon, but here’s one, anyway, in the form of an inexpensive 3 bed/1.5 bath hamlet house that was just recently put on the market. It appears to be in great condition, with lots of good stuff like wood floors, a pellet stove in the living room (speaking of the living room, is that shelving unit/entertainment center built in?), French doors, bay windows, and a sharp kitchen. It’s also been neatly landscaped with attractive plantings and stone retaining walls. Close to the Callicoon Creek, and walking distance to Callicoon, which is a wee charming hamlet, indeed. Floodsmart.gov gives this house a high-risk rating for flooding due to its proximity to the creek.

Five-Figure Friday: Maplecrest Cottage, $99,000

435 county rt 40 maplecrest ny

Maplecrest is a hamlet in Greene County about 4 miles south east of Windham Mountain. This cottage is located along the Batavia Creek, which puts it at high-risk for flooding, but if you’re willing to take the plunge (so to speak), it’s a nicely-renovated house with radiant heat, heating timers, and an on-demand water heating system. Size is less than 1000 square feet, but the high ceilings make it seem more spacious. The house is connected to the garage via breezeway, and it’s all on a full acre of land off of a pretty country road close to ski mountains and outdoor fun.

Car-Free Upstate: Washingtonville Fixer-Upper, $89,850

43 east main street washingtonville ny

The village of Washingtonville is in Orange County, situated alongside the Moodna Creek. This 4 bedroom house also overlooks the creek, but with that perk comes the risk of flooding, which is high with this property. However, we love the look of it: Those bright blue shutters, spacious backyard, exposed brick fireplace in the living room, and plank floors. Listings says it needs work, and the price is so low, we’re wondering if the work that needs to be done has to do with flood damage. The house is about a five minute walk to the Shortline bus, which stops there every weekday morning and will get you to the city in about 2 hours, as well as other stuff around the village.
